Up in Arms is a transmedia performance project that removes the boundaries between process and product, utilizing performance, visual art, and social practice. Created by Anna-Maria Nabirye and Annie Saunders, participants are invited, two at a time, to re-embody and re-create the iconic 1971 portrait of activists and friends Dorothy Pitman-Hughes and Gloria Steinem. In doing so, the artists create a space for meaningful dialogue around racism, feminism, and friendship.

Up In Arms is represented the UK by Artsadmin and in the US by Octopus Theatricals [new line] please contact Nicky Childs at or Sophie Blumberg for bookings and project information.
